Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo V. Umali reminded everyone that election gun ban starts tomorrow, January 13, for the May midterm polls.

Umali said that those who will be caught violating the election gun ban will be punished.

“Magsisimula na sa Linggo (Enero 13, 2019) ang pagpapatupad ng Election Gun Ban para sa darating na Midterm Elections,” the solon said.

“Ipatutupad ang gun ban mula Enero 13 at magtatagal hanggang Hunyo 12. Sa panahong ito ay ipinagbabawal na ang pagdadala at paglilipat ng baril, explosives o anumang uri ng sandata,” he added.

Umali said that the permits to carry firearms are canceled during the gun ban except for the police and military.

“Kanselado ang lahat ng permit at lisensya maliban sa mga pulis, sundalo, at sa mga kumuha ng permiso sa COMELEC,” the solon said.

“Kaugnay nito, ang mga lisensyadong nagmamay-ari ng baril ay hindi maaring magbitbit nito sa labas ng kanilang bahay ngunit maaari rin naman silang humiling ng exemption mula sa Commission on Elections (Comelec) na siyang nagre-review ng kanilang aplikasyon,” he added.

Umali is serving his last term as Oriental Mindoro solon. He’s running as the province’s governor.
